I read your profile page, and, based on this project, it doesn’t look to me like you need much in the way of guidance!

beautiful work. that oak has tremendous figure – the ray fleck looks almost like cherry. Id love to see close ups!
is the back papered like the front? also why did you choose to use solid sides – and are the sides paneled or are the slats overlayed for decoration only? finally, how about the inside – are there any shelves, etc? we need more pics! :-)

Really nice looking piece!

Thank you all for the lovely compliments.AaronK- The back is not papered like the front. I used veneered ply for the back panel. I chose to do solid sides because I wanted something more substantial for the carcass and i liked the look of the faux shoji. The overlayed slats are for decoration only, to carry around the horizontal lines I have on the doors. There is one shelf on the inside. Thanks for you interest!

Welcome to LJ’s Wahine, you will love it here, although it is addicting…....
This is just beautiful in everyway, I love the grain in the wood, the color and especially the shoji design.I can’t wait to see more of your projects as they are completed.
Thanks for sharing!
I also agree with Charlie, from the looks of this project, as well as the chair you are sitting on, I don’t think you need much guidance at all !
